Let me know what youy think.


"So does that mean that you can't make Inu-papa kiss the floor anymore?" Shippo asked; hopping onto the half-demon's head as the kiss ended. I laughed and nodded my head.

"Inuyasha, why don't you sit down?" I said to prove my point. He flinched for a second and then pulled me into another exultant kiss. Someone at the door cleared their throat.

"Can someone please explain what's going on?" Fred asked.

"Yeah 'cause I'm completely confused." George agreed.

I laughed and pulled away from my reluctant mate.

"Inuyasha has had that necklace on for almost two years now. It's more than just a piece of jewelry though, it binds, bound him to me." I started to explain.

"It used to bind me to you. Lately it's just been a way for you to keep me in line and keep me from doing things I'd regret." Inuyasha corrected. I smiled and rubbed his ear.

"I know." I told him. "But when we first met he tried to kill me so another, more skilled priestess, put the rosary on him and told me that my subduing spell was the only thing that would work. I was 15 and scared to death so the only thing I could think of was 'sit', 'cause he was a dog-demon." I finished explaining to the group that stood around me with their jaws hanging open.

"Wow, Gome. When did all of this happen?" Fred and George, the first ones to recover, asked in tandem. I laughed.

"Two years ago, right after I left Hogwarts and started going to muggle school again, I was pulled into the well on my family's shrine by a demon." I looked around at them and cocked my head to the side. "It's a long story. Why don't you come in and sit down." I suggested.

Everyone grabbed the handles of their trunks and walked in. There was a flurry of activity as they put their trunks away and settled into seats. I sat next to the window with Shippo on my lap and Inuyasha to my left, Fred and George sat across from me, Fred on the left and George on the right. When everyone was settled, Ron was next to Fred and George and Hermione was next to him and Harry was sitting on Inuyasha's other side.

Once everyone was settled I looked around at them all.

"First I would like to make introductions. I am Kagome Higurashi, I will be your DADA teacher this year," a few jaws dropped at this, "this is Inuyasha, my mate, and Shippo, our adopted son." I hugged Shippo tightly and dropped a kiss on the top of his head.

"I thought that only animals mated." The girl named Hermione said, I nodded. "Then how is it that you are his mate and neither of you are animals?"

Inuyasha snorted.

"I'm a half-demon, of course I mate. Unlike most demons I mate for life, all dog demons do, wolfs as well." He said. I was happily surprised that he was so civil.

The girl gaped at him.

"Like I said," I began, capturing her attention. "There's a lot to explain, but I think it would be best if you introduced yourselves first." I nodded at George to begin.

"I'm Fred." He said, beginning one of the twins' oldest tricks with a mischievous smile.

"I'm George." Fred continued.

"We're twins." They finished in tandem.

I smiled.

"Thank you, Fred, George." I said, kicking the actual Fred and George in their respective knees.

"Ow! Never could get anything past you, huh Kagome?" Fred griped, rubbing his knee.

"Even when you were still in school we could never trick you!" George complained.

"That's because I was around twins a lot. My cousins are identical twins, geniuses." I said, rolling my eyes.

"What!? Since when?" Fred, George, and Inuyasha shouted at me at the same time. I giggled and leaned forward a little.

"Since they were born four years ago." I whispered in a conspiratorial tone.

Fred and George rolled their eyes and Inuyasha 'feh'ed.

"So now, introductions?" I asked, grinning widely.

"I'm Hermione Granger, are you from Asia?" she asked.

"Yes, Japan, how did you know?" I explained.

"Your complexion. You have olive skin." She replied.

"Know it all." Fred and George's younger brother muttered affectionately.

"Thank you." Hermione said, not letting it bother her.

"And you areā€¦?" I asked the young red-headed boy.

"Ron Weasley. How come you're gonna be out teacher? You can't be much older than the three of us." He said, gesturing to himself, Harry and Hermione.

"Well now that we all know each other, I'll tell you my story. If you still want to know why I'm going to be your teacher, you can ask then, alright?" I suggested.

"Alright." They agreed.
